You’ll be welcomed into a calm, warm, private space where all your senses wil be aroused and you can forget your busy, stressful life for awile. Your journey starts with a lovely aroma in the air, continues with the savour of an herbal tea, a zen soundtrack, a beautiful and serene room lit by candles and the magic of Shakti’s touch on your body. You can take a shower before and after to freshen up. After a short discussion and a meditative moment together, you will lay down on a soft, heated futon and you are ready to embark on your massage journey.

This allows your body the time necessary to enter a phase of deep relaxation that allows the total letting go that opens the way to your journey.

I use neutral, organic oils.

No, and no discussion of sexual services will be tolerated. I offer authentic tantric massages for you to fully receive and travel within your body to wonderful new realms.

Tantra is a spiritual practice, a pathway towards greater consciousness, a way towards harmony of body-mind-spirit. Originating in India over 6000 years ago, it was first kept secret, its teachings only passing from tantrika to tantrika. It reached the West through the teachings of Osho, Margot Anand, Daniel Odier, amongst others.

Tan means « to weave ». Tra  means « link, connection »

Tantra is the experience of the interwoveness of everything. All is connection, consciousness, love… One.

In the sacred space of Shakti Touch, you are welcomed in your completeness, your oneness, body mind and spirit. During your massage or reiki journey, you are Shiva or Shakti, an incarnation of the divine masculine or divine feminine.

Massage is an essential part of Tantra in which the body is considered to be a temple, to be treated with unconditional love, respect and caring. Every part of the body is massaged with care and attention, allowing awareness of its totality and harmony with the mind and spirit.

To get the most out of your experience, it’s best not to eat a heavy meal just before. If possible, try to have free time right after your massage to enjoy and integrate the sensations.

It allows you to reconnect with your body in a new and deeper way, linking body to mind and spirit. You will experience new sensations and reach a place of well-being and calm.

It’s a massage where the whole body is massaged. To get the most out of your massage, being completely nude is best. Of course, you always have the option to keep your underpants on.

At Shakti Touch we offer an open and caring welcome to all people, regardless of their gender identification.

Reiki is a healing technique that is thousands of years old , thought to have first been a Tibetan Buddhist practice. Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, rediscovered it in the early 1900s. It most often involves the laying on of hands but reiki can also be channeled from a distance or by placing hands above the body.

Rei is the essence of all that is, both living and non-living. It’s the pure, creative energy that brings things into existence.

Ki is the body’s life force, also known as prana, élan vital, manna, chi in different traditions and cultures.

Life force flows in the body via chakras, meridian and nadis, and around the body in an energy field known as the aura. It nourishes the body’s organs, tissues and cells. Life force is affected by thoughts and feelings, flowing freely when positive and getting disrupted if negative.

Illness and dis-ease occurs when life force is low or blocked. When it is abundant and flows freely, good health and vitality result.

Reiki heals by flowing through negatively affected zones of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. The body’s energy field is boosted vibrationally and the life force can once again flow in a free, healthy way.

Reiki is composed of both male and female energies. The male (yang) is known as Shiva in Tantra and is linked to the crown chakra. The female (yin) is called Shakti in Tantra and is associated with the root chakra. Both energies are present and communicate with each other to achieve the proper balance and polarity of energy needed for healing.

Reiki is gentle yet powerful and effective. It can heal stress, pain, low self-confidence, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, colds, and it improves the effectiveness of other therapies. Reiki treatments boost physical vitality, bring a warm feeling of well-being, and can also lead to expanded consciousness and spiritual experiences.
